Ardupilot APM-Too much power

    I have just assembled my first quadcopter roughly in order to test the components. I am using ardupilot APM as my flight controller. The major problem I am facing is that even if I give the slightest of input on the throttle, the drone just flies suddenly to a super high altitude and becomes really hard to control. Is there a way that I can give just enough throttle to make the drone rise about 6-8 feet so that I can learn to control it without damaging it a lot?

    I would really appreciate any help whatsoever.

    Thank You

    Did you perform all of the calibrations? Specifically, did you do the radio and ESC calibrations? I have built three aircraft using the APM and have not had problems like that.
